Bryson DeChambeau makes it two straight wins in FedEx Cup playoffs

PGA Dell Technologies Championship- Final Round

Tiger Woods chips the ball to the ninth hole during a practice round for the BMW championship golf tournament at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., today.

Cameron Smith, who returned to form last week, continued his fine play with a third-place finish at 13 under.

As expected, Furyk named Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau to the USA team that will play the Europeans Sept. 28-30 at Le Golf National outside of Paris.

And he solidified his claim to be one of Jim Furyk's captain's picks for the American Ryder Cup team, where he would join the likes of Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, back-to-back U.S. Open victor Brooks Koepka and others who have staked a claim to follow Tiger Woods as golf's next big thing.

DeChambeau's victory in the second PGA Tour playoff event, following his previous win at the Northern Trust, increased his lead in the FedExCup standings with two tournaments left.

Tiger Woods backed Bryson DeChambeau as a US Ryder Cup captain's choice on Sunday after watching his playing partner fire an eight-under 63 at the PGA Dell Technologies Championship.

Furyk still has one more player to name and will complete his line-up following the conclusion of the BMW Championship on September 10, with Tony Finau the favourite to get the final spot.

'Lo and behold I'm part of this team. The idea is to find the hottest player to fill out the team, and no one has been close to DeChambeau over the last two weeks.

The three picks join Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson on the team. "We're heading over to Europe, where it's going to be an interesting, boisterous crowd".

"It's a wonderful chance to do something that I haven't done in my career and would very much like to". The U.S. last won away from home in 1993.

The Ryder Cup hasn't always been kind to Mickelson in the past, however.

Furyk said Woods will no longer serve as a vice captain.

However, Woods will relinquish his vice-captain duties to focus on playing, with Furyk naming David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar as additional vice-captains Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesenn will be making their maiden Ryder Cup appearances. He declined to speak with media after his round, but is still a prime candidate to earn a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup.
